Olga Grushin was born in Moscow and moved to the US at eighteen. She is the author of four novels. Her debut, The Dream Life of Sukhanov, won the New York Public Library Young Lions Fiction Award and earned her a place on Granta’s once-a-decade Best Young American Novelists list. Her latest, The Charmed Wife (Putnam, January 2021), is a subversive exploration of fairy tales and romantic expectations, and focuses on Cinderella who, thirteen and a half years after the wedding, is bent on murdering her Prince Charming. No mice were harmed in the telling.
